One year ago this day, I published my first ever post on the “Adventures of VEGirl” all about fruit smoothies. Looking back, it wasn’t exactly the most inspiring or original thing I could have written about, but it marked the beginning of a new form of activism for me.
In this last year, I have grown immensely within. I have been through an eating disorder, and still struggle with similar recurring thoughts. I have gotten healthier. I have gained yet more knowledge in music, in cooking, and nutrition. Three rabbits and three degus came into my family’s life, and one rat has left it. I have also gained another year of experience as a vegan and animal activist, with new experiences being accumulated everyday.
In honor of this anniversary, I will have some new features coming to the blog. But honestly, I’m too tired to coherently write about them now (still a bit jet lagged from NYC). Speaking of NYC and Washington DC, I have lots of exciting stories to document and travel tips to give.

So then, things to come (oh, me and my lists– we can never be apart):
- Stories from NYC and DC
- My trip to Babycakes NYC (eek!!!)
- General GF vegan travel tips
- Tips for surviving on guided tours (where you can’t choose where you eat)
- Stories and advice for adults, kids, and especially teens with different dietary needs than their peers who wish they could just “eat like everyone else”.
- New features to the blog
